This is how I look most of the time lately: very very tired
Being tired is a way of life at the House of Kyle these days. Baby V is growing like crazy, fueled by seemingly constant feeding. My wife looks like a zombie much of the time, so when I get home from work, I do my best to get lots of housework done and take the baby off her hands. I’m usually up until midnight or so, Mrs. Kyle even later, and then there’s the feeding that happens sometime after last call, but we’re never sure when. Then I’m up at 6 a.m.
At the same time, Spawn1 has needs as well and so we’re doing our best to give her focused attention. School is fast approaching, and along with it, an increased number of events crowding our family calendar. Soccer, art class, Girl Scouts and PTA meetings…. so when are we gonna catch up on this sleep thing? I’m sure V will settle into a predictable eating and sleeping pattern at some point, I just hope it’s soon.
I do have moments of lucidity and energy and motivation. Unfortunately, they usually strike at work, and the things I’m motivated to do are at home.
But enough of that bitchin, let’s talk about the good stuff. The baby’s growing a lot, she’s at around 11 pounds now, keeping up with her pound a week growth pattern. And judging by how her footie pajamas fit, she’s probably grown another inch, too. Overall, even with sleep deprivation, life is good.
Happy HNT everyone
